Running QR for more excited states

Dear All,

I know the manual says that I cannot restart quadratic response calculations for calculations that require excitation energies, e.g. with

Nevertheless, maybe there is a way around to do the following. If I have finished QR calculations for let's say 5 excited states I want
to calculate 5 more but I don't want to start from scratch, but rather use those 5 converged response vectors. I tried to use RSPVEC file
from linear response calculations for converged 10 excited states, but I keep on getting this error
"FATAL ERROR: .QRREST is not possible for quadratic properties involving residues (i.e. excitation energies)"

Is it possible at all somehow to save the computational time here?

If you only restart the wave function and copy back the contents of the tar archive to the execution directory, e.g. using the -f option, then it can restart but note that there is no checking for validity etc. so this is entirely up to you to make sure that the files are correct.
